This came with a group of patches that I picked up the other day.  Can anyone tell what era this is from, and where it was made?  I have never seen that burlap type backing on another patch.  Any thoughts are appreciated.  Thanks.

Is the material on the back made from the same type used in burlap sacks or is it just the same weave? I have seen british made ones with a very coarse weave backing material.

I do not think it is actual burlap.  It does have the same weave, but is not as stiff to the touch.  Almost feels like a real course cotton, or wool.

I would suggest North Africa, WW 2. I have seen a few patches made there and they tend to be on the crude side. The designs are there, just somewhat crudely made.
